  • How I do it: Balloon tamponade of prostatic fossa following Aquablation

    Aljuri Nikolai, Gilling Peter, Roehrborn Claus, MD PROCEPT BioRobotics Corporation, Redwood Shores, California, USA

    Since its first report in the 1870s, control of bleeding after transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) has remained a concern. Foley?s initial report of a urinary catheter involved placement of the balloon into the prostatic fossa following TURP. Removal of prostate tissue with a high-velocity saline stream (Aquablation) is a recently reported alternative to TURP. As Aquablation is heat-free, alternatives to non-thermal hemostasis were sought to optimize the procedure. We report use of a balloon catheter in the prostatic fossa after Aquablation as a post-resection hemostatic method.

  • State of the art: Advanced techniques for prostatic urethral lift for the relief of prostate obstruction under local anesthesia

    Walsh Patrick Lance, MD Eisenhower Medical Center, Rancho Mirage, California, USA

    Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) affects an estimated 60% of men over the age of 50 and 90% of men over the age of 80. The prostatic urethral lift (PUL) is a safe and effective office-based procedure that is used worldwide for the treatment of BPH in men who are dissatisfied with medications due to side effects or lack of efficacy or don?t want to have a transurethral resection of the prostate due to the side effects and invasiveness of the procedure. In 2012 Barkin et al, published the standard technique for the delivery of the Urolift implant. The objective of this article is to describe the current state of the art advanced techniques for the delivery of the UroLift implant.

  • Treating male retention patients with temporary prostatic stent in a large urology group practice

    Roach M. Richard, MD Advanced Urology Institute, Oxford, Florida, USA

    Men with either chronic or temporary urinary retention symptoms are common patients treated in a urology practice. Both indwelling and intermittent catheterization are widely used to treat this condition. These approaches are associated with significant complications including infection and reduced quality-of-life. Infection is a target for quality improvement and cost reduction strategies in most care settings today. We use a temporary prostatic stent (TPS) to address these issues in our practice. In this report, we describe our approach to patient selection, sizing, placement and follow up of 214 TPS placed in 56 men with chronic or temporary urinary retention in an office setting. With the first stent placement, average indwelling time was 27 days. Thirty-two patients had multiple stents placed. Replacement was performed routinely and was generally required because underlying comorbidities precluded surgery. In these patients, an average of six stents were placed (range 2-18) with average dwell times of 31 days. Symptomatic urinary tract infections (SUTI) occurred in only 6 of 214 TPS placements (2.8%), resulting in an incident rate of 0.93 SUTI per 1,000 TPS days. TPS is a safe and efficacious means of alleviating symptoms of urinary retention. TPS does not share the same infection risk profile or quality-of-life drawbacks associated with urinary catheters; this makes TPS use relevant as a urinary catheter alternative or when a urinary catheter is not recommended.

  • How I do it: Aquablation of the prostate using the AQUABEAM system

    MacRae Catriona, Gilling Peter, MD Department of Urology, Tauranga Hospital, Tauranga, New Zealand

    Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) represents one of the most common conditions encountered in urological practice. For many years, transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) has been considered the gold standard for surgical management of symptoms in prostates of 30 cc-80 cc. Although TURP provides excellent functional outcomes, there is significant morbidity associated with the procedure, particularly with regards to bleeding, electrolyte imbalance and sexual dysfunction. Emerging technologies aim to maintain the excellent functional results of TURP whilst decreasing the adverse events experienced by the patient. Aquablation is a novel therapy using a high-velocity waterjet and real-time ultrasound imaging with robotic assistance for targeted removal of prostate tissue. We present our experiences with this new technique, the equipment required and steps involved.

  • How I do it: Same day discharge for transurethral resection of prostate using Olympus PlasmaButton and PlasmaLoop

    Pham Ryan, Parke Jacob, Kernen M. Kenneth, MD Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine, Auburn Hills, Michigan, USA

    Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is one of the most common conditions affecting older men. Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) has widely been considered the gold standard in surgical treatment for BPH. However, this procedure remains largely an inpatient procedure. Inpatient admission ultimately adds to healthcare cost and patient morbidity. In this article, we present an alternative methodology to treat BPH using combination Olympus PlasmaButton and Olympus PlasmaLoop therapy. Preliminary results from our experience suggest improved hemostasis with adequate resection, allowing a majority of our patients to be discharged the same day of the procedure. We describe our novel technique as a safe and effective way to possibly treat BPH in an outpatient setting.
